Notes

Moves are in UCI format. Use a chess library to convert them to SAN, for display.

All player moves of the solution are "only moves". I.e. playing any other move would considerably worsen the player position. An exception is made for mates in one: there can be several. Any move that checkmates should win the puzzle.

FEN is the position before the opponent makes their move.
The position to present to the player is after applying the first move to that FEN.
The second move is the beginning of the solution.

Popularity is a number between 100 (best) and -100 (worst).
It is calculated as (upvotes - downvotes)/(upvotes + downvotes), although votes are weigthed by various factors such as whether the puzzle was solved successfully or the solver's puzzle rating in comparison to the puzzle's.

You can find a list of themes, their names and descriptions, in this file.

The Opening fields are only set for puzzles starting before move 20. Here's the list of possible openings.

Generating these chess puzzles took more than 35 years of CPU time.
We went through 200,000,000 analysed games from the Lichess database, and re-analyzed interesting positions with Stockfish 12/13 NNUE at 40 meganodes. The resulting puzzles were then automatically tagged. To determine the rating, each attempt to solve is considered as a Glicko2 rated game between the player and the puzzle. Finally, player votes refine the tags and define popularity.

Notes

About 6% of the games include Stockfish analysis evaluations: [%eval 2.35] (235 centipawn advantage), [%eval #-4] (getting mated in 4), always from White's point of view.

The WhiteElo and BlackElo tags contain Glicko2 ratings.

Games contain clock information as PGN %clk comments since April 2017.

Variant games have a Variant tag, e.g., [Variant "Antichess"].

Decompress .zst

Unix: pzstd -d filename.pgn.zst (faster than unzstd)
Windows: use 7zip

Expect uncompressed files to be about 7.1 times larger.

ZStandard archives are partially decompressable, so you can start downloading and then cancel at any point. You will be able to decompress the partial download if you only want a smaller set of game data.

You can also decompress the data on-the-fly without having to create large temporary files. This example shows how you can pipe the contents to a Python script for analyzing using zstdcat.

$ zstdcat lichess_db.pgn.zst | python script.py

Open PGN files

Traditional PGN databases, like SCID or ChessBase, fail to open large PGN files. Until they fix it, you can split the PGN files, or use programmatic APIs such as python-chess or Scoutfish.
